Curing lower back pain seems a challenge to most of the people suffering from it.Lower back pain is a very bad situation in which the lumbar spine region is affected.The lower lumbar spine consists of 5 spinal bones that support us to stand and sit properly.Lower back injury happens to everybody atleast once in a lifetime.Lower back injuries can happen due to improper diet,heavy lifting or sprain or strain in the lumbar region.

When someone gets a lower back injury then he/she will be unable to bend his/her lower back and feel much pain in the lower lumbar region. Swelling and tearing of muscles is common in lower back injury.Tearing of muscles and swelling is not a problem at all and can be cured with home remedies like applying diclofenac gel and taking hot salt water fermentation.It will go withing few weeks.But if spine has got some problems then immediately consult a doctor.Lower back pain is not limited to muscle tears only,spine can be injured which is the worst of all.

Back in November 2012 I got a lower back injury due to lifting weight incorrectly.It wass left lower back pain.My lumber spine curvature was altered and I was unable to lift any weights also I was unable to bend my lower back.The pain was very bad as I was unable to normal life activities.I took x-rays and a tlc/dlc blood test.The blood test came normal but x-ray showed a little hindrance in the spinal curvature which gave me the pain.I consulted the doctor and he said that I am fine but have to do exercises to prevent and cure this pain otherwise it will go worse.So based on my experience with lower back pain I am telling you to cure it naturally at home.However this can’t replace a doctor’s treatment in spinal fractures.
